Does MLB Care About Alex Rodriguez's Assault on History?

Ronald MonestimeCorrespondent ISeptember 7, 2010

A little over a month ago, New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez hit the 600th home run of his career, becoming the youngest player in Major League Baseball history to reach the milestone and only the seventh member of the 600-home run club.

Currently, Rodriguez has 605 home runs on his ledger, which places him 4 behind Sammy Sosa on the all-time home run list, 25 behind Ken Griffey, Jr., 55 behind Willie Mays, 109 behind Babe Ruth, 150 behind Hank Aaron and 157 behind Barry Bonds.

Assuming he doesn’t hit another home run this season and averages 32 home runs per year over the next five seasons, Rodriguez will become the all-time home run king in 2015 at the age of 40.
